WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Wilmington Police say one man is dead and another hurt after a shooting in the Creekwood community Wednesday night. The shooting happened just before 10 p.m. Wednesday at 1005 North 30th Street.

According to police at the scene of the shooting, two black males were chased into a duplex by a group of five or six men. They ran up to the second floor, where the two victims were shot. There were people uninvolved in the incident on the first floor.

Police say the man that died was 19-year-old Jonathan Jones Jr of Jacksonville. The other man, 24-year-old Joseph Edwards Hanible of Wilmington, was taken to New Hanover Regional Medical Center, but on the way, the ambulance carrying him was hit by another car at the intersection of Market and 16th Streets. Another ambulance took Hanible the rest of the way to the hospital.

A 9-1-1 caller from the incident was certainly surprised when the men ran into her home.

“I don’t know people just ran into my house and shot them…(crying)…they ran into my house, ran up stairs and shot them.”

Police say the group of gunmen ran out of the home and got into a white Honda with tinted windows and a blue and white box-style Chevrolet.

Police are still looking for the shooters.
